Senator Kabiru Garba Marafa, Zamfara State Coordinator of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Campaign Council during the 2023 general elections, praised the President’s non-interference in the Supreme Court’s judgment on governorship tussles. The Supreme Court recently affirmed the elections of eight governors, and Marafa believes this decision has saved the country’s democracy and reignited hope in the judiciary.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Monday, Senator Marafa expressed gratitude to President Tinubu and the Supreme Court justices, stating that their commitment to allowing the will of Nigerian voters to prevail deserves recognition. Despite pressures from party loyalists, President Tinubu stood his ground, ensuring a hands-off approach to judicial processes.

Marafa highlighted the historical significance of this move, preventing a repeat of the 1983 scenario when the collapse of the Second Republic followed the National Party of Nigeria’s (NPN) takeover of opposition-held states. He commended the Supreme Court justices for living up to the expectations of the Nigerian masses, asserting that they have written their names in gold.

Reflecting on past experiences, Marafa recalled a similar incident during the 2019 general election buildup, where the judiciary’s intervention in the conduct of primaries led to a landmark judgment favoring the opposition party. He emphasized the need for the judiciary to maintain impartiality, emphasizing that political actors must allow justice to prevail for democracy to endure.

Senator Marafa congratulated Governor Dauda Lawal of Zamfara State, urging him to govern with magnanimity, justice, and fairness. He called for collaboration with President Tinubu, Vice President Kashim Shettima, and relevant security agencies to restore peace and security in Zamfara State. Senator Marafa emphasized the people’s yearning for peace in the region.
